We drove from Chamonix through deep snow and over the col du Montets and round to the small ski resort of Les Marcottes. The weather cleared and we skied powder through the trees with hardly a sole around. we then drove round to the Whitepods where we spent the night. The next day the plan was to ski tour but instead it rained all day and was pretty miserable. The following day the weather improved and we skied in Villars and had a very pleasant lunch at the golf club.
